MGB

(Ministersto Gosudarstvennoi Bezopasnosti)
   The Ministry of State Security, or the MGB, was created by Joseph Stalin on 15 March 1946, when the Soviet government transformed all “people’s commissariats” into ministries. Viktor Abakumov was the first minister, and he built a powerful organization out of the intelligence, counterintelligence, and security components of the NKVD and NKGB. In 1954 the MGB was transformed into the KGB by party First Secretary Nikita Khrushchev.
